Blast Near Coalition HQ in Kabul Afghanistan

An explosion has been reported near the headquarters of the Nato-led international coalition forces (Isaf) in the Afghan capital Kabul.

The HQ was "on lockdown", an Isaf spokeswoman told Reuters news agency, while an unconfirmed report said there had been a number of casualties.

Security has been tightened as supporters of an anti-Taliban warlord mark 11 years since his assassination.

Ahmad Shah Massoud was killed by al-Qaeda suicide bombers.
